Meralin Fawcus: Artworks with a Twist


Meralin Fawcus: Artworks with a Twist

10 May 2024 – 15 Jun 2024

Meralin Fawcus was told early on by her mother that she exaggerated. After that, Meralin says it was a logical step to gravitate to the advertising and marketing industry for a career. Says Meralin, "I spent 48 years designing and illustrating for many large advertising agencies. Now that I am free from the constraints of client's wishes, I can draw and paint whatever I wish. I still exaggerate certain elements to a degree, to achieve a slightly twisted outcome for the finished painting.” 

Meralin says she is fascinated by what people see in her artworks, and for her, that's the enjoyable part. She has been known to eavesdrop at art shows to hear their reactions.
